Day 82 Morning Update

REVOLUTIONARY GREETINGS TO ALL THE COMRADES IN THE TRENCHES AND THOSE STILL YET TO JOIN. THE STRUGGLE FOR LIVING WAGES AND BETTER WORKING CONDITIONS CONTINUES UNABATED.

WE HAVE A DEMO THIS COMING  MONDAY AT 1000HRS (PARIRENYATWA MAIN ENTRANCE). WE CALL ON EVERY  MEDICAL DOCTOR TO COME AND SPEAK FOR THE PROFESSION. LET US JOIN WITH OUR BELOVED PART Vs IN REJECTING THE DEAN’S MOVE TO FORCE EXAMS UPON OUR COLLEAGUES. WE ARE EXPECTING THIS TO BE THE LAST PUSH AS IT WILL LEAVE THE EMPLOYER WITH NO-ONE TO FOOL. YOU AND I NEED THE EXAM SITTING STREAMS. THEY ALSO NEED OUR SUPPORT. LET US HELP EACH OTHER AS WE AWAIT OUR GREAT VICTORY.

WE HAVEN’T BEEN SHORT OF MEDIATORS IN THIS STRUGGLE AND WE CONTINUE TO WELCOME THEM AS THEY CONTINUE TO COME, BECAUSE AS THE ZHDA WE BELIEVE IN DIALOGUE BUT WE WILL NOT WAIVER FROM OUR DEMANDS OF HAVING SALARIES THAT ARE ADJUSTED ACCORDING TO THE EVER-RISING INFLATION, TO EXIT THE PERPETUAL CYCLE OF INDUSTRIAL ACTION.

IN AS MUCH AS LONGEVITY OF A JOB ACTION DOES NOT DIRECTLY TRANSLATE TO ITS YIELD, THE REALITY OF THE MATTER IS PEOPLE NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR A LONG RUN WITHOUT SALARIES, IF WE ARE TO CONTINUE NEGOTIATING IN THE MANNER WE ARE NEGOTIATING WITH THE GOVERNMENT THUS FAR.

ZHDA WILL MAKE A FOLLOW UP WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL CONCERNING OUR APEXIT.

OUR UNITY HAS BROUGHT US THIS FAR AND WILL KEEP US GOING. OUR COLLEAGUES WHO ARE STILL GOING TO WORK FOR WHATEVER REASONS, IT’S HIGH TIME YOU JOIN THE ZHDA FAMILY. YES YOU HAVE TO RISK THAT JOB LIKE THE 435 CADRES WHO HAVE RISKED THEIRS SO FAR IN THE FIGHT FOR THE PROFESSION.

CROWD FUNDING CONTINUES FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T RECEIVED THEIR SALARIES FOR NOVEMBER. FINANCIAL UPDATES WILL BE ISSUED IN DUE COURSE.

THIS INCAPACITION IS GOING TO END ON OUR TERMS WITH EVERYONE REINSTATED AND NOT REAPPLYING FOR THEIR JOBS AND ONCE WE HAVE AN OFFER WE WILL RELAY IT BACK TO THE CONSTINCUENCY TO DELIBERATE ON IT BEFORE SIGNING FOR IT.

DAY 70 UPDATE

DAY 70 OF INCAPACITATION.

ALUTA CONTINUA
CERTA VICTORY
TODAY MARKS DAY 70 OF THE SILENT GENOCIDE IN ZIMBABWEAN HOSPITALS. THE GOVERNMENT HAS USED SEVERAL TRICKS TO INTIMIDATE AND ENSLAVE US BUT WE SHALL REMAIN UNITED AND STRONG.

AS ZHDA WE ENDORSE THE MESSAGE BY SHDA. WE ARE NOT SLAVES AND IT IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SUBSIDIZE THE GOVERNMENT. IT IS UP TO THE GOVERNMENT TO ENSURE THE HOSPITALS ARE PROPERLY MANNED AND HAVE ADEQUATE MEDICATION AND EQUIPMENT.AS  ZHDA AND SHDA WE REITERATE THAT WE ARE NOT A POLITICAL ENTITY BUT WILL CALL A SPADE A SPADE. IT IS UP TO GOVERNMENT TO CONTINUE FIGHTING ITS CIVILIANS OR TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND PAVE WAY FOR DIALOGUE.

WE ARE NOW OUTSIDE APPEALING WINDOW. OUR VICTORY WILL NOT COME FROM THE COURTS WHICH HAVE LABELLED POVERTY AS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.

WE ARE STILL OPEN TO DIALOGUE WITH THE EMPLOYER BUT WE SHALL NOT COMPROMISE OUR STANCE ON INTERBANK RATED SALARIES. THE COST OF LIVING HAS RISEN BY 1500% AND REFUSING TO RAISE OUR SALARIES ACCORDINGLY BECAUSE “INFLATION WILL ESCALATE” IS NOT OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS DOCTORS. WE OFFER AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE AND IT IS UP TO GOVERNMENT TO FIX THE ECONOMY WHILE WE GET WELL DESERVED REMUNERATION.

REINSTATING OF THE FIRED MEMBERS IS A PREREQUISITE TO SINCERE DIALOGUE, WHICH IS LONG OVERDUE. THREATS WILL NOT DETER US, WE DEMAND A FAIR LIVING WAGE.

MEDIA CAMPAIGN WILL CONTINUE. WE ARE LIVING IN A GLOBAL VILLAGE AND AS SUCH WE HAVE THE SPOTLIGHT DIRECTLY SHINING AT US. THIS IS OUR OPPORTUNITY TO RESTORE SANITY TO
THE PROFESSION AND HEALTHCARE AS A WHOLE.

*OUR ROUTINE MONDAY SOLIDARITY MEETING IS ON TOMORROW AT PARI MAIN ENTRANCE AT 0900HRS*. BE PUNCTUAL COMRADES!

ZHDA MEMBERSHIP FORMS ARE DOWNLOADABLE FROM THE WEBSITE AND FROM NEC MEMBERS FOR THOSE INTERESTED.

TO HELP EASE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN WE ARE GOING AHEAD WITH CROWD FUNDING.TREASURER GENERAL WILL KEEP EVERYONE UPDATED THROUGH WEEKLY FINANCIAL REPORTS. WE ARE AT WAR TO SAVE THE PROFESSION, LET’S STAY PUT UNTIL THEY CAPACITATE US TO ATTEND TO OUR DUTIES.

ALUTA CONTINUA
CERTA VICTORIA

NO TO SLAVERY
NO TO POVERTY!
NO TO INTIMIDATION
NO TO DISMISSALS!

THE MORNING UPDATE DAY 60

TODAY WE HAVE ENTERED DAY 60 OF INCAPACITATION.THE HSB & MINISTER OF HEALTH HAVE BEEN WASTING TIME FOR 60 DAYS FAILING TO RESOLVE THE IMPASSE.

THE MINISTER AND HIS DEPUTY ARE OUT OF ZIM TO ENJOY THEMSELVES WHILE CLAIMING THE COUNTRY IS BANKRUPT TO CAPACITATE US. THEY HAVE FOREX TO FLY IN CELEBRITY JETS BUT CLAIM NOT TO HAVE THE MONEY TO OFFER US A DECENT SALARY. IT’S ALL LIES. MONEY IS THERE,ONLY FOR THEM TO WASTE.

WE WON’T SURRENDER UNTIL WE FORCE THEM TO COME ON THE NEGOTIATION TABLE AND AGREE WITH US TO PAY DOCTORS A SALARY PEGGED AT INTERBANK RATE.

YESTERDAY WE HAD YET ANOTHER USELESS AND EQUALLY UNPRODUCTIVE MEETING WITH THE HSB.

AS USUAL THEY BLATANTLY REFUSED TO GIVE US SALARIES AT USD RATE. THIS DID NOT SURPRISE US, WE ALSO MAINTAINED OUR POSITION TO CONTINUE IN TRENCHES UNTIL WE GET AN INTERBANK RATED SALARY

COMRADES, MAY WE URGE YOU TO START THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX. THINK ABOUT OTHER WAYS TO GENERATE INCOME WHILE IN THE TRENCHES.

TODAY ZHDA EXCUTIVE IS MEETING EU EMBASSY @ 1600 TO ASK FOR DONOR MONEY.

WE HAVE MADE IT CLEAR THAT NO ONE IS TO ATTEND THOSE FUN HEARINGS.

WE WILL NOT ALLOW A FEW MISGUIDED INDIVIDUALS WHO DON’T KNOW THEIR WORTH TO DETERMINE OUR HOWEVER AS ZHDA FAMILY WE WELCOME THEM WITH WIDE OPEN ARMS IN THE TRENCHES.

THE STRUGGLE MIGHT CONTINUE KUPFURA ZANA BECAUSE THE EMPLOYER IS STILL PLAYING GAMES WITH OUR LIVELIHOOD.

UNTIL VICTORY,

ALUTA CONTINUA

THE MORNING UPDATE

 

ZHDA MORNING UPDATE DAY 58

THE STRUGGLE FOR A DECENT SALARY PEGGED AT INTERBANK RATE CONTINUES UNABATED. TODAY WE CELEBRATE 58 DAYS IN THE TRENCHES.

YESTERDAY WE SAW A STRONG LETTER FROM THE SENIORS DENOUNCING THE MINISTER OF HEALTH FOR FAILING TO DISCHARGE HIS MANDATE & FOR SLEEPING ON HIS JOB.

WE BELIEVE THE LETTER BY THE SENIORS IS INTENT & PURPOSE IN SYNC WITH OUR DEMANDS PARTICULARLY FOR USD EQUIVALENT SALARIES. WE ONLY HOPE THAT THOSE WHO ARE STILL SNEAKING TO WORK BEHIND OUR BACKS, TO WORK UP NOW AND SENSE A MORAL OBLIGATION WITHIN THEMSELVES TO JOIN THE REST OF THE MEDICAL FRATERNITY TO FIGHT FOR BETTER SALARIES. NO ONE IS IMMUNE HERE. THE FIGHT IS FOR ALL OF US.

COLLEAGUES, TUNE IN TO HStv AT EXACTLY 1430hrs TODAY. WE WILL BE LIVE TALKING ABOUT DOCTORS INCAPACITATION. WE’LL SHARE THE LINK TO THE HStv PAGE ONCE IT IS AVAILABLE.

THE MORNING UPDATE

*ZHDA MORNING UPDATE DAY 57*

28 OCTOBER 2019.

WE HAVE ENTERED DAY 57 OF THE STRUGGLE. MAY WE KEEP THIS FIGHTING SPIRIT BURNING UNTIL WE WIN THE STRUGGLE FOR A DECENT SALARY.

OURS IS A JUST CAUSE. WE ARE ASKING THE EMPLOYER TO PAY US A DECENT SALARY FOR THE SERVICES WE RENDER EVEN UNDER THE MOST DANGEROUS WORKING CONDITIONS. WE WANT TO BE PAID FOR OUR HARD WORK.

SO FAR, THE EMPLOYER HAS ONLY RESPONDED BY GIVING US NAUSEATING OFFERS OF 30,60 AND 100% INCREMENTS. ALL THESE OFFERS AMOUNT TO NOTHING IN A HYPERINFLATION ECONOMY. INTERBANK RATED SALARY IS THE ONLY SOLUTION.

TODAY THE EMPLOYER HAS SCHEDULED DISCIPLINARY HEARINGS FOR US. WE HAVE ALL AGREED THAT NONE OF US MUST ATTEND THE HEARINGS CALLED BY AN HSB WHICH IS FAILING TO OWNER ITS END OF BARGAIN. WE ARE INCAPACITATED TO ATTEND THE HEARINGS.

WE WOULD LIKE TO REMIND EVERYONE OF OUR SCHEDULED *SOLIDARITY MEETING AT PARI TODAY AT 900AM*. WE URGE EVERYONE TO KINDLY ATTEND. SOLIDARITY MEETINGS HELP US ALLOW THE STRONG MOTIVATE THE FAINT HEARTED TO KEEP PUSHING FORWARD.

WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO FIGHT TO THE END. GOING BACK EMPTY HANDED MUST NEVER BE AN OPTION. STRENGTHEN EACH OTHER WITH WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT. TO KEEP US GOING FINANCE WISE, WE CONTINUE ALSO PLAYING OUR PART BY ORGANIZING MORE FINANCIAL BACKUP THROUGH CROWDFUNDING.

VIVA WITH THE STRUGGLE VIVA!

FORWARD WITH USD RATED SALARIES FORWARD!

*UNTIL VICTORY, THE STRUGGLE MUST CONTINUE!*
